The Borderlands of Azizabad is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its aversion to nipples, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 3.311 billion Azizabadians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 40.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Azizabadian economy, worth 102 trillion francs a year, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,910 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Agreeing to appear on TV is often the best way to access social care, boys who even ask about cheerleading are placed on the Sex Offenders Register, Leader has just been declared ruler of Azizabad in an international press conference, and Azizabad has designated Azizabad City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Azizabad's national animal is the elephant.

Azizabad is ranked 228,385th in the world and 10th in The Mirror World for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -8.6 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
